Pharmakon Library

Pharmakon Library
Created + Curated by Christina McPhee

The project is produced in association with Silverman Gallery, San Francisco.
NY Art Book Fair, October 23-26, 2008

My work ‘Poison In/Poison Out’ will be included in Christina McPhee’s Pharmakon Library.
Pharmakon Library is an ongoing series of graphic folios created and curated by Christina McPhee. The folios comprise a series of open works by artists who address, through image and/or text, the principle of critical reversability, or proximity of poison and cure. "Pharmakon" in Greek may mean antidote, recipe, poison, drug, spell, remedy, drug, talisman, gift and paint. Each folio consists of pigment jet archival prints by three artists. Each folio is produced as an edition of three. The scale of each folio images is 13 x 19 inches each (Super B). Print stock is Epson exhibition photographic paper and Niyodo washi; and printed with K13 Ultrachrome Epson pigment inks.

The project debut will occur at the New York Art Book Fair October 23-26, 2008, with the release of the initial folios in limited edition.
